The Last Email ...


My last email from ankit_seth01@infosys.com :

The day has finally come when I have to send this mail to my friends and say goodbye to Infosys.

The journey:

September 26th, 2010 - Feb 25th, 2011 (Mysore)


To be honest, I hated the place at first, the amount of studying we had to do and walk 2 kms daily, not the kind of lifestyle you expect from a college bloke, but with time I got used to it, made new friends, I started liking it in someways and when the time came to leave mysore I was sad and missing it.

The memories are flashing by as I type this.. my first skit performance ever, my hostel room, my Intermediate class, mainframes class, counter strike, the singing competitions/birthday celebration at Oasis, the paranthas of maitri, the long queues for movies, the compre (lol.. no! I want to forget that).. It was great! :)

February 26th, 2011 - May 25th, 2012 (Pune)


As they say history repeats itself and guess what? I hated Pune too and this time even more than I hated mysore, No project, the scorching heat, a new city and everyone busy with their projects. The transition from mysore to pune was difficult at first but then again with time I got a project, made some new friends and as time went on I started liking it a bit and when the time has come to leave Pune/Infosys I am sad and I am going to miss it.

I'll remember..my project team(I'll miss you guys the most.. :( ), the rains, the tum-tum(auto) rides, FC2, dal tadka-jeera rice (:D), the project/team parties, the PJ rounds, the place where I stayed (thank u owner), the parties at home.. there are just too many..

Oh well! Change is a part of life, I guess its time to end this mail with a Thank you to all my friends  including my team mates and my flatmates, my managers. A big thank you to all of you. Thank you for all the memories and for being a part of my life. Stay in touch! :)


Times change, people change

You celebrate happiness

You endure pain

Sometimes you lose

sometimes you gain

Life never stays the same

But the memories remain...


God Bless!!!

Thanks & Regards

Incomplete...

As I sit near the window, a cool breeze blowing outside.. Billions of thoughts cross my mind ... The scene is poetic but I choose not to write one this time, I cannot.. The burden of these thoughts is too much to bear, I really am not in a mood to write.. But i don't know why i am still typing...

My fingers hitting the keys and with every keystroke I am trying to put my heart out but it just isn't happening. All the happy thoughts are disappearing and memories of the amazing 1.5 years are flashing by. Its too hard to see them all, some of these memories are displeasing to say the least, some of them make my heart skip a beat.. some bring a smile to my face and some make my eyes moist. but they don't just go away they keep piling up.. I can hardly concentrate on the work I am supposed to do.. Even typing is becoming harder, I am plugged in but the song feels inaudible..

I hate change(yes! I said it..).. I have to leave this place behind and take the memories.. again.. I cannot stay back, I have a dream to fulfill.. but what if it doesn't get fulfilled, not all dreams get fulfilled.. Nah! not now.. Its like I am sitting with a fishing(read Thinking) rod and catching thoughts.. and putting em here..Only two weeks left, Time is slowing down as the D-day approaches, making the transition even harder.. It shouldn't be that hard.. but m afraid it is... 

I try to set my thought process straight, the more crooked it gets.. Come 26th May, everything will be fixed..
But the next two weeks are going to be difficult.. I don't how my silly little mind will react.. I don't know If I'll leave happily or in tears..
As Jeremy clarkson says: How hard can it be?.. Mr. Jeremy, I don't know.. 

This post as I see it.. remains Incomplete, Cause words are not enough, rather unavailable to describe what I feel right now.. 

Finally I caught a happy thought :P:
26th may.. the new life at chandigarh begins.. :) 
Journey of my dream begins.. 

God Bless!!! :)

P.S : I will miss my cubicle.. :P
